EDITEDIT:Having trouble getting the updated version up; until it's up you can see it where I linked to it below! Alternatively, you can find it at AP as well.

EDIT: Swapped out the low-quality 'wave'-things out to something less grainy. It hasn't show up yet, but I link to original v. new --


Wow, it's been a while! School and all that, you know. So, back in January I found this list of fanfiction prompts. Instead, I thought they'd make good wallpaper prompts. Only, there are 64. For now, I'm only looking at the first 11 of them, being that this is a long-term challenge. And today's is #11 - Animal

When I saw this scan I was kind of amazed. It's got a really natural feeling, don't you think? Like I can see her breathing. I really liked it - and I've recently fallen in love with Kanbara-Sensei's work. Her/His (?) art is so full of life and illustrates so many different things. I could go on and on, but I know a lot of you feel the same way about Kanbara's work. Anyhow, there was, as I said, something so natural/organic/instinctive about this scan that I thought 'animal' was a good theme. It's a lot more watered down/liberated than I intended, but what can you do?


Listened to Florence + Machine~ (and, yay, I'm on summer break!)

    Really nice job. The multiple layers look good. I love simple Wallpapers like this; the ability to group your desktop icons on the sides and still enjoy the image. ^.^ Thanks for sharing.

    I love this wallpaper and was ready to download and set it as my desktop, but the light "waves" are too low-quality and pixelated when compared to the rest of the wall. It'd help if you found a higher resolution image for that because it's a pity for this good work to be ruined by such a small detail.

    Really, really creative and beautiful. Took my breath away when I first laid eyes on it. There is one detail that could be improved, like pandemonium91 first pointed out- the lights in her head are low in quality in comparison to the rest of the wallpaper. Fix that detail, and this will be perfect.

    This is really beautiful, it's simple and the colors and gentle on the eyes and the fire in her hair is awesome! Great work - Keep it up! (^_^)

    A Kunie Kanbara wallie! Yay! And a nice one, too! I love the simplicity of this one :)
    You have great taste, and this idea of 64 themes is inspiring... I might give it a try, too.
